00:33 hi everyone. What's up? How are you? I'm excited. For today's show, we're going to talk about how to stop living in a fog, and I want to ask you, how many of you hit this news button every morning? Not because you're tired, but because you're not fired up about your debt. How about Sundays? Are you dreading that Monday? I cannot tell you how many people I talk with that are living their days. That way they're living their life that way. Or maybe if you're like me, do you have everything that the world has taught us to value? Yes, still are hungry for more, but maybe you just can't put your finger on it. It fires me up when I hear others talk about their lives and their passions with such conviction. And my question to you is, do you have that thing, that thing that lights you up?
01:22 Do you have a passion, a purpose, a mission, a dream that ignites your soul and gets you out of bed before your alarm clock because you are bursting with ideas. Your mind is spinning. Do you feel alive or are you going through life, living in a fog? And that is what we're going to talk about today. I'm going to share with you how you can stop living in a fog and start living your life on purpose by finding your passion. And I'm excited about this. So the question is how are we going to do that? Number one, wake yourself up. Let's pause for a moment. Are you sucked in the trap of being busy, the trap of the everyday cycle. Just getting through the day, the week, and you can't wait until the weekend. Life is just passing us by. Are you going through the motions, settling, living a life of mediocrity, blah.
02:15 Guys, wake up. Chalk this up as a much needed a wake up call. If we don't, if you don't have any new goals, passions, dreams, or missions that you want to be on or that you are currently on, nothing to reach forward, nothing to strive for and just getting through your days. Let me tell you, you are living on autopilot. You are living in a fog and something is missing and that would be the best you living your best life. So if you're in a funk going through the motions like right now, honestly, let's be transparent. No more lying to yourself, no more fooling ya know more kitten around pause long enough to truly reflect and create a clear perspective and ask yourself, where are you? What's going good, not good? Are you happy? Are you truly happy? Do you know where you are in life?
03:12 Do you know what you are passionate about? My question is why or why not right now? Currently with your faith, your finances, your fitness, your friends, your family, your career, the fun times. Let's not waste another moment. Staying stuck with the same routines with what's comfortable living in a daze or fog. So it's self reflection time, waking yourself up right now. It's a choice that you can decide to make. So it's pretty cool. Two, take the first step in finding your passion. Okay? Maybe you're on here, you're listening. You know what your passion is. You have the dream, you have the mission, and that is great. I hope you are actually living a passion-driven life. There's probably going to be another episode in that in the future, but for the majority, our passions, our dreams are buried. So the question is how do you find your passion?
04:07 Where do I even begin? Okay, so I have a few things here that I want to share with you, but the first thing is you could try something new. Do something that scares you. Like, I don't know, take a fitness class, a cooking class, go on an adventure, do something different. If you try enough new things, if you try some things that scare you, something will hit home and it's like an alarm is going to go off in your heart. You're going to be in your element. You will know clues to our passion really are all around us, but I want you to be on the lookout for those things. Be on the lookout for something more, something meaningful. I'm here to encourage you to fight to this stuff for it. You can also ask yourself, what brings you the most amount of bliss? Serenity, joy, your passion.
05:01 It's like it often feels effortless for me. Helping women have breakthroughs, chase their dreams and live their life with fire. Fires me up and it lights me up from within. You know, I love hiking. I mean I'm in my element, but the how I do that, it varies. So I want you to ask yourself, what fires you up? What lights you up, or what do you do that makes you lose track of the time? Everyone's passions are so different and it is a journey. No, that it's not a single app. It is impossible to live at the brink of your greatness if we don't take the time to discover it. So we got to stick with this process, stick with this journey and fight for it. So to build upon that though, by understanding it is a journey. I want you to face or attack this journey, get on it and discover how you can actually contribute to the world in your unique way.
05:59 What makes you feel useful? Inspired, alive. It doesn't have to make sense to anyone, but you think about what brings us true happiness and self worth. We all know it is not the trappings of success such as the beauty, the money, or the fame. Our life's mission is not to achieve the appearance of success or whatever version people want for us or the expectations people have. And it's not going to all of a sudden fall in your lap. It is about discovering that thing, that thing that makes you tick and then to spend a lifetime doing it. Think about that. I want to say it again. It's about discovering that thing that makes you tick and then to spend a lifetime doing it. So fight to find it, figure it out, stumble upon it, chase it down. And when you do, your passion will shine so brightly through you.
07:01 It will be contagious. Number three, what is it that you want? What are your dreams? What is it that you really want out of life? Okay, here we are. We are waking our self up. We're taking the first step to find our passion, but now we got to ask us, what is it that you really want out of life? By discovering your passion, you will probably find something brewing inside of you that you simply had made a time to notice. We stopped living in this fog. We realize the dreams we have in the desire to live a passion driven life, and most of us don't ever get asked the question much less. Take the time to ask ourselves. So I'm asking you now, what is it that you really want? Remember, this is your life, your dreams, and your greatest adventure. Think about the qualities and actions that are important to you.
08:00 What defines you? What will you and what won't you tolerate in your life? Check in with yourself. What is it that you value? Take the time to examine your life and discover what it is that you really want. I know we're all grown up here, okay? But the majority of us are living on autopilot. But here's the thing. It doesn't mean you can't take control of your own thoughts, feelings, your own destiny. I get it. We were all taught that after we graduate high school, then there's college, then the career, then the family, the house, the mainstream. But what is it that you want? You are in control of the steering wheel. Life can be whatever we make it, and I don't want you selling yourself short by not discovering your passion, not by having the dreams. Guys, that's boring. You are so much more valuable to the world and to everyone around you when you are living with passion and purpose.
09:05 I hope to have lifted the fog for you today to have inspired you to take action to something different. But I want you to go in and go over this a little bit again. Okay? So it really hits home one, wake up, face the storm, rock the boat, get out of the fog. I know it is easier to sail on calm waters. The guys that's not living don't spend the days finding the least disruptive ways to go through life. Going through the motions that may, I don't know, bring comfort at first, but I promise you, you will eventually get bored and begin to feel stuck or even feeling a lack of purpose and you're going to be right back in that fog to take the first step in finding your passions. Fight for the journey of discovering your passion. We're not settling anymore, right? Try new things, scary things.
09:57 Put yourself out there and find what will get you up in the morning ignited. Find out what it is that you truly want. What dreams do you have when you do, when you identify those things, all of a sudden things make sense. Life is brighter, a part of you awakens and you will never ever be the same again. You know the same. I know we've all heard it. Life ain't a dress rehearsal. You get one shot and it matters what you choose to do with it. Keep me updated. Okay, I'm excited. Keep me updated. On your journey and if you are inspired to take action to do the work it takes and to be intentional to stop living in a fog and start living your life on purpose and you're willing to find your passion, I want to hear about it. We would love to have you on an unstoppable journey with us.
